Am I crazy, or are these 2 Ben Moore Colors exactly the same?

bellajourneyMarch 27, 2011

Hi everyone!

I narrowed down our entry foyer color choice to:

* Ambiance 309 - Classic Color Collection

* Antiquity OC-107 - Off White Color Collection

My husband told me the little swatches looked the same, but I disagreed and bought samples. Well, after painting them both on poster boards, even I am having trouble telling the difference!

Can it be that they are indeed the same exact color?

Thanks for your help!

BM's off white collection is compiled from their other colors - not necessarily new colors. These are indeed the same colors - your retailer should have shared that with you.

paintguy1 - THANK YOU!!!!! :) (I am rather annoyed that my retailer didn't tell me this, but very grateful for your reply!)

To my eye, Antiquity and Ambiance look different. I think the Ambiance is a little grayer. Are there codes on the top of the sample cans?
